Cochin, India. Worldwide there are about 38 million commercial and subsistence fishers and fish farmers. Approximately 4.3 billion people rely on fish for 15 percent of their animal protein intake.

Most people spend at least one-third of each day at work. How we work defines our lives, providing sustenance – food and shelter, as well as feelings of belonging, a sense of accomplishment and self-esteem. In my travels I’ve increasingly developed a significant interest in how people do their work. I see people at work farming, fishing, herding, gathering, cooking, sewing, serving, making crafts and working with machines. In some places work is done as it has been done for centuries with no help from modern machinery or technology. Craftspeople take great pride in using methods passed down through the generations preserving the traditions of their craft and cultures. In other cases people use traditional methods because they don’t have access to or the means to purchase labor-saving machinery. This project highlights people working in Cambodia, Cuba, Ethiopia, Guatemala, India, Morocco, Nepal, and Myanmar
